    I once had a strat; however, it was not a Fender. It came from a small brand called "California." I later sold it off to a friend. Anyone have an idea what that brand is and if it is good or not (in terms of quality)?

    I'm not really a Stat guy, but they're such an iconic guitar that I always try to have one in the collection. :thumb:

    This is a great guitar, and was quite a steal. Picked up for peanuts on local craigslist. The seller probably confused it for a MIM Standard Stratocaster. It's actually a Fender Classic Series '50's, which is a considerably more expensive axe.

    To date, all my Strats have been cheapies, the most expensive prior one having been, in fact, a MIM Standard. But I think this is my "keeper."

    I love living in a college town. Buyer's market.

    Nice..

    I had a similar thing happen - only at GC. I snagged this mint '98 Classic Series 50's for $239.99 in their used section a while back. I'm assuming they also thought it was an MIM Standard...

    My first build. Has a strat headstock, but my logo. Anything I've built after has our own shape, other than Walter Trout's guitar.

    This one has the wood dyed, and a Tru Oil finish.

    Congrats! Mine was somewhere right around two bills as well. Since these street for $800, the MIM Standard confusion makes sense. I really like the gold spaghetti logo, and the maple necks.

    Yep, sounds like we both made out pretty good with these Classic 50's, price-wise.. :)
